Anglo-America most often refers to a region in the Americas in which English is a main language, or one which has significant British historical, ethnic, linguistic, and cultural links.Anglo-America is distinct from Latin America, a region of the Americas where Romance languages (namely, Spanish, Portuguese, and variably French) are prevalent.
Anglo-America includes the United States (Hawaii excluded) and Canada in North America, and the term is frequently used in reference to the two countries together. Despite having a French-speaking majority, Quebec is often considered part of Anglo-America due to cultural, economic, geographical, historical, and political considerations. Other areas composing the Anglophone Caribbean include territories of the British West Indies, Belize, Bermuda, and Guyana.

The adjective Anglo-American is used in the following ways:
- to denote the cultural sphere shared by the United Kingdom, the United States, and English Canada. For example, "Anglo-American culture is different from French culture." Political leaders including Winston Churchill, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan have used the term to discuss the "Special Relationship" between the United States and Britain.
- to describe relations between Britain and the U.S. For example, "Anglo-American" relations became more relaxed after the War of 1812."

Anglo, on the other hand, refers to an English-speaking American in distinction to Spanish speakers, especially in the Southwestern states and in Mexico. This usage originated in the discussion of the history of English-speaking people of the United States and the Spanish-speaking people residing in the western U.S. during the Mexican–American War.
While the term Anglo-American used in regard to ethnicity is only used to refer to people of Caucasian ancestry, by analogy with the term Hispanic, the term Anglic, Anglophone, or Anglophonic, would denote all English-speaking people and their descendants, regardless of prior ethnic background, much like Hispanic refers to people of any race. Therefore, a person of Chinese descent who adopts the U.S. or English Canadian American culture would have English-speaking "Anglic", i.e. "Anglophone" or "Anglophonic", children (in contrast to Spanish-speaking Chinese descent people living in Hispanic America who would be "Hispanic"). Anglic-American, Anglophone-American, or Anglophonic-American thus can refer to all those whose families who regardless of race have become mainstream English-speaking people in the United States, English Canada, English speaking areas of the Caribbean, Belize, and Guyana, including African Americans.

Many ethnic groups, such as East Europeans, East Asians, Indians, Africans, Latin Americans, and Middle Easterners all live in Anglo-America today.

"Usage Note: In contemporary American usage, Anglo is used primarily in direct contrast to Hispanic or Latino. In this context it is not limited to persons of English or even British descent, but can be generally applied to any non-Hispanic white person, making mother tongue (in this case English) the primary factor. Thus in parts of the United States such as the Southwest United States with large Hispanic populations, an American of Polish, Irish, or German heritage might be termed an Anglo just as readily as a person of English descent. However, in parts of the country where the Hispanic community is smaller or nonexistent, or in areas where ethnic distinctions among European groups remain strong, Anglo has little currency as a catch-all term for non-Hispanic whites. Anglo is also used in non-Hispanic contexts. In Canada, where its usage dates at least to 1800, the distinction is between persons of English and French descent. And in American historical contexts Anglo is apt to be used more strictly to refer to persons of English heritage, as in this passage describing the politics of nation-building in pre-Revolutionary America: "The 'unity' of the American people derived ... from the ability and willingness of an Anglo elite to stamp its image on other peoples coming to this country" (Benjamin Schwarz)."
